Cream Cheese Spritz

Still here and making cookies. I’m trying to catch up with the posts while the Wife forces me to watch New Moon. The bad acting, silly dialogue, and predictable plotline is really distracting me from writing anything funny.

A couple of weeks ago I made some Cream Cheese Spritz using the trusty cookie press.

Load dough into a cookie press, and press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (Please note: The random round cookie on the sheet is due to the Wife messing around with the cookie press)

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden.

Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Results: Good for the first few days but they got funky after that. They could be good with other types of extract too.
